Just a quick post to show off the amazing handiwork of my husband who completed this alcove shelving unit over the Christmas holidays. He made it all by himself with not too much swearing and for around £30. I’m loving the extra space and now have an excuse to buy some more books to fill them all up.
We got the wood at a wood reclamation centre called the Wood Store in Brighton. The Wood Store is a not-for-profit Social Enterprise, with income raised by charging for wood collection and from sales of wood and wood products (they sell lovely handmade shelves and boxes amongst other items). The surplus gets ploughed back into the project and in making grants to local environmental groups. Double bonus!
